Hi Elisha,

(I see that Michael just answered this, but I thought I would send this message anyway, since I'd already typed it and it has a snapshot.)

The SCIRun::FieldsOther::FieldMeasures module has support for computing these. You can give it any type of Field as input, and on the UI specify that you want it just to compute the Size of the Elements. Passing the output into a SCIRun::FieldData::ManageFieldData module, you will have a Field where each element's value is its volume. If you want to probe a specific value, you can then use a SCIRun::FieldsCreate::Probe module -- on the UI for the module, you will see the data value (volume) associated with the current location of the probe. You can either move the probe widget around the volume interactively (via the Geom output port), or you can just type in the index of the cell that you want and it will move the probe there and tell you the value.

Thanks for your help,
